    Is it one of the wrong denomination clashes? If so that's a really awesome pickup.

    Lincolns are still coins. :)

    Newp, first images in public. Kinda-woody. :)

    Interesting note about imagery: This time, I did not change the lighting at all between obverse and reverse. You can see the result; when there's more devices/relief and less fields, the rules are different than when the opposite is true. I'm going to shoot the reverse a little more optimized (I shot these five minutes ago) and edit this post.

    OK, here's a little more attention to drawing out the color- and optical contrast of the reverse. Still won't see the little highlights from the device relief on the obverse which contribute to the "feel" of luster, because although it's got all the original luster, the surfaces are too mottled to bring that out from the fields themselves.

    Two dollars and I probably over paid.The value of piece does nothing to add or subtract from it's history. Breen, who had a lot of contempt for the investment aspect of coins, was known to expend a dozen lines in an auction catalog for something worth $20 and two lines on something worth $1,000.

    My 1940 isn't as nice as @SuperDave but trying to get in line with the forum

    And that show was likely about 15 miles away from me.

    Since the OP stated old or new purchases, I'll post both. This was one of my earliest purchases in the early/mid '80s for $2.50......
